Wolf Solent

Author(s): John Cowper Powys


Often described as one of the great apocalyptic novels of our time, "Wolf Solent" is the story of a young man returning from London to work near to the school at which his father had been history master. Complex, romantic and humorous, it is a classic work combining a close understanding of man's everyday experience with a delicate awareness of the spiritual.

Product Information

John Cooper Powys, a descendant of John Donne, was born in 1872. A prolific novelist, essayist, correspondent, poet and philosopher, he grew up deep in the English countryside that would so inform his later writing. He spent thirty years travelling the length and breadth of America before settling in Wales to write the novels for which he is principally remembered, most notably WOLF SOLENT (1929) and A GLASTONBURY ROMANCE (1932). He died in 1963.
